Our friends at the learning scientists were kind enough to share some valuable resources for us to navigate this whole new worldof educational opportunities, challenges, and frustrations. More information from them may be found at their website.
In today’s digest, we would like to provide resources for teachers, students, and parents during the challenging COVID-19 quarantine. Learning and teaching is still going on, but mostly shifted online. In the past few days, we have all probably come across different resources to support this online learning experience and we thought it would be helpful to feature some of these here. If you come across a resource you want to share with us and our community, please feel free to do so here. We will collect all additional suggestions in this speadsheet. Thanks and stay healthy” – The Learning Scientists.
